Academy Awards honor alumnae

On April 28, St. Mary’s Academy will honor three alumnae at the 10th annual St. Mary’s Academy Awards. This year’s ceremony recognizes Aneshka Dickson, class of 1995, for career achievement; Dorothea DeLapp, class of 1980, for achievement in science or medicine; and Samantha Kuester, class of 1997, for "living out a dream."

The St. Mary’s Academy Awards will take place starting at 4 p.m. in the rooftop commons at the all-girls school, 1615 S.W. Fifth Ave. in Portland.  

Dickson is  vice president and chief financial officer of Portland-based Colas Construction Inc, a family business. In September of 2010, she became the youngest person ever appointed to the Portland Development Commission.

“St. Mary’s helped me build confidence in my leadership skills due to the fact that we were in a setting that encouraged us to excel and to speak our minds,” she said.

For DeLapp, an interest in computer programming that began her senior year at St. Mary’s helped launch a career in space science. DeLapp works at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where she is part of the team that developed ChemCam, a scientific instrument installed on NASA’s Curiosity rover that, once it reaches Mars, will be collecting data from rock and soil samples and transmitting the information to Earth.

Kuester, a Hollywood costume designer, has worked on films and television shows, including the upcoming film “The Healer,” starring “The Hunger Games” actress Isabelle Fuhrman.

Kuester has always loved art, and it was at St. Mary’s that she discovered ways to apply those skills to thespian pursuits. She acted in a few plays while a student at St. Mary’s Academy and found herself drawn to the costumes. “I loved how costumes could create or contribute to characters and give them a backstory,” she said.

Admission is $10 in advance ($20 at the door without a reservation) and $5 for Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary and current St. Mary’s Academy students.
